Stuck in what way?

What are the symptoms? Does windows detect the RNDIS device? If so, does windows install a device driver for it? If not, you can download and install a device driver. Did you manually assign an IP address to the RNDIS network interface? What did you do? What did or did not work? Did you charge the kindle battery?
EDIT: Can you ping the kindle from a command prompt? What is the output of the DOS command "ipconfig /all"? You did not supply enough information for us to help you. Please answer the questions.
